MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - U.S. District Judge Irene Keeley has disqualified herself from a lawsuit over a 6-year-old West Virginia University degree scandal involving the daughter of U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin.
Her order cites a federal statute requiring judges to step aside if their impartiality could reasonably be questioned.
Keeley is a past member of the WVU Board of Advisors - now the Board of Governors - and served on the WVU Alumni Association board.
Judge John Preston Bailey will hear the case of former business school dean Stephen Sears and former associate dean Cyril Logar.
They say WVU has ignored an academic integrity policy requiring "diligent efforts" to restore the reputations of people cleared of misconduct.
The scandal involved an executive master of business administration degree given to Mylan Inc. CEO Heather Bresch.
